Other Ways to Support Our Community

There are many other ways you can support the children, families and individuals we serve. These are just a few:

Make a gift in honor/memory of a loved one. A letter acknowledging your gift will be sent to the person(s) you designate without the amount of the gift being disclosed. You can choose this option when using our online donation page or include memorial/honoree information when mailing your donation.

Ask your employer about their Matching Gifts Program. Many employers will match all or a portion of donations made to charitable organizations. Inquire through your employer’s HR department.

Donate stock, marketable securities, real estate, or life insurance. There are many benefits to the donor when making a charitable donation of stock, marketable securities, real estate, or life insurance. Please check with your financial advisor to determine the best option for you.

At Community Solutions I met some wonderful women who helped me with my fears and helped me understand that I did not deserve to be abused by anyone.

Luz, age 50, Solutions to Violence

[Community Solutions] helped me with my problems and were there when I was having hard times. They have helped my family with a place to live and helped us pay some bills and buy some food when we needed it.

Serena, age 15, Child & Youth Behavioral Health

I cannot describe very well but all I know is that each day is getting better. Your program helps.

Jin, age 62, Adult Behavioral Health

Thanks to the program, I left the ugly house I was living in that had two small windows for the 8 of us, dirt floors, broken windows, no door, and the toilet always clogging. Now my children and I have a nice apartment where we have more space, privacy, and carpet where we can be barefoot.
